I liked the trade back wehen it happened and I still like it today.
Ziggy was, and still is, one of the best scoring wingers in the entire league.
When you have the chance to acquire top notch talent, you have to do it.
I was dissappointe dbecause we traded Jokinen and Biron away.
I really thought that both would break thru soon.
Jokinen turned out to be a pretty good centre, although not nearly as good as he was thought to be.
Biron is a complete bust, just like Josh Green.
The first round pick turned out to be Tyler Pyatt, who should become a pretty good NHLer.
So all in all (assuming Palffy leaves as a free agent) the Kings cleary got the better end of that trade.
Especially if you considered what the Isles did with Jokinen.
BTW does anyone remember the initail offer that Milbury excepted but Bettman rejected?
